      Ensuring kids gloves stay on can be a challenge. Kushi-riki designs kids gloves with features like adjustable straps, elastic wrists, and extended cuffs that can be secured under or over jacket sleeves. Additionally, toddlers have the most difficulty keeping mittens on. So, we created the stay-put elastic banding that is inside only for the 2/3 age. They will never notice it’s on under their mittens, and it works by keeping their mittens on - genius!

      Q. Are waterproof gloves good for winter?

      Yes, waterproof gloves are excellent for winter as they keep hands dry in snow and slushy conditions. Kushi-riki's waterproof kids gloves are designed to maintain warmth while preventing moisture from seeping in, ensuring that children’s hands stay comfortable and dry during outdoor winter activities. Also, if their hand starts to sweat the moisture wicking fleece lining will pull that moisture away from the hand and the membrane will help with that. After sweating you can cool down and get cold quick in winter weather, so our gloves help prevent that.
